HOME is such a delightful counseling office. The caring staff is welcoming to all. The building is a playground of therapy building materials that you can’t help but want to enjoy as a child. There is also a calming presence that is soothing for all who enter. I have referred many families to this practice with no hesitations as a School Counselor working at a local school. Dolores is a wealth of knowledge and she loves to share and teach. I am experiencing this as she is supervising me as I move my Counseling license to Florida. Be it mentoring, counseling, or community support you can find it all at HOME!

House of Mercy and Encouragement is a wonderful counseling center. The founder, Dolores Mortimer, has created a place that fosters healing and growth. I am a counselor who has worked in several practices, but HOME is truly different. The care that is extended to the clients is also extended to the volunteers and staff. I feel fortunate to be part of an organization that provides respect , good care and counseling expertise while maintaining an open and gracious heart.

I can’t say enough good things about this organization. You can walk through the doors as the name suggests and feel at home and that they love my children as their own. The number of services they offer, their scholarship programs, and their professionalism really sets them apart. Highly recommend!

HOME is definitely where you can find heart and professional excellence. From the people working the front desk to the counselors and tutors, everyone works to make a positive difference in the lives of the children and families who walk through the door. As an educator, I have referred many families looking for support to Dolores and the folks at HOME. Each time I am impressed with the progress, and peace my children and their families experience!

The therapists and staff truly believe in the work we do to help our children and families. I have worked here for 11 years. The dedication, time and love Dolores has devoted shows when former clients come back to thank her for the help and support she gave them during difficult times. It's an honor to be a part of such a special organization!
